The Texas A&M defensive end was the consensus top player in the 2017 draft and will be penciled in as the likely starter opposite of 2016 second-round pick Emmanuel Ogbah.

As for the details of the deal, NFL Insider Ian Rapoport reports Garrett will receive $30.4 million guaranteed with a signing bonus of $20.25 million.

So it's not a big surprise that No. 1 overall pick Myles Garrett signed his contract with the Cleveland Browns on Friday, but it's still a positive day for the organization.

In a career-low 10 games because of the high ankle sprain, Garrett saw significant dips in productivity as it relates to tackles (33), solo stops (18) and assists (15), as well as forced fumbles (two) from the previous season, but still registered 15 tackles for lost yardage.

He had 32 ½ sacks in three seasons for the Aggies.

Cleveland is hoping the 6-foot-4, 272-pounder can immediately improve the team's pass rush and provide a dynamic force on the defensive side of the ball under defensive coordinator Gregg Williams.

The Browns now have six of their draft picks under contract: third-round defensive lineman Larry Ogunjobi, fourth-round defensive Howard Wilson, fifth-round offensive lineman Rod Johnson, seventh-round kick Zane Gonzalez and seventh-round running back Matthew Dayes.

The Browns' 26 sacks tied for the second fewest in the National Football League last season.
